2010 Dodge Viper vs. Its Competition

2009 Dodge Viper SRT10
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Viper's an outrageously powerful machine, and so is the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo.

With 500 horsepower, all-wheel drive, and a comfortable interior, the 911 Turbo also acquired a lot of electronic assists to tame its handling so that even civilians can enjoy it.

It is, however, almost twice as expensive as a Viper.

For a more direct comparison, check out the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1; new last year, the ZR1 hammers out incredible power and wears a $100,000 price tag to complement its 3-second 0-60 mph times and its 200-mph top speed.

Muscle-car fans might also consider the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang, which delivers 540 horsepower from a supercharged V-8, along with major handling improvements and a 155-mph top speed.

Quick Specs
The 2010 Dodge Viper is truly, truly outrageous, from its ground-shaking performance to the paucity of space and comfort it doles out to its owner.
Nostalgia is still a big part of the appeal, but the 2010 Ford Mustang is now every bit a modern, refined sport coupe.
While the 2009 Chevrolet Corvette provides plenty of impressive performance to dream and/or brag about, this car is not a one-trick pony. If ever there were a practical sportscar, this is it.
